I didn't know what the heck you were talking about, so I had to click on it on YouTube. That was not a public service on your part, because prior to today, I was mercifully innocent of all knowledge of that song. I had either never heard it or had blocked the memory, and you made me listen to 10 seconds of it.

After which I got the idea. He wrote my WORM poem.

See, in 7th grade,I'd forgotten to do my homework and had a few minutes before class. I quickly decided on a topic -- WORM -- and strung a bunch of adjectives together in the shape of a worm. It was a huge hit with the teacher.

That's what Billy Joel did. But he made more money with it.
